WATCH: 'Are we still eating?' Irishman finds unwelcome guest in his food
This is not something you want to find on your plate come dinnertime.
A group of friends got more than they bargained for when food arrived at their table at a Donegal restauraunt.
Although most were delighted with their feed, one of the gang were not best pleased to see a live cricket come out of the lettuce.
"Are we still eating?! one of the group can be heard ask.
Despite the fact a live insect was pottering around the table, everyone else tucked into their meals, according to one of the group, who sent the video into Independent.ie.
"Once we said it to the waiter, they couldn't have been more apologetic or nicer," he said.
"They replaced the dinner, which was thankfully insect-free."
